Admissions secrets
Admissions “Secrets”

  • There’s no secret of how to get into engineering

  • We utilize the same screening process for all applicants regardless of major

  • Students should apply for the major they’re interested in

  • We’re looking equally for competitive candidates for engineering and the likelihood of admission depends upon the quality of the applicant pool and the number of spaces available in the program

  • For additional information please visit our web site or attend an Admit Info Session (offered weekly in April)

We re interested in students who
We’re Interested in Students Who…

Transfer admissions criteria
Transfer Admissions Criteria

  • 60 transferable semester units

  • Minimum 3.0 GPA

  • 100% completion of “required” courses prior to transferring:

    • Reading & Composition included in 100% completion (we require both the 1st and 2nd half of R&C)

    • Fall 2010: primary reason applicants denied admission was lack of R&C completion (due to following IGETC instead of www.assist.org)

    • Fall 2011:78% of reviewed applicants who did not have 100% completion were missing R&C requirement (due to following IGETC instead of www.assist.org)

    • Fall 2011: Many of the applicants did not complete one or both of the Prerequisite and Work In Progress forms in January as instructed on the MyBerkeleyApplication web site and on the transfer applicant checklist despite email reminders

  • Students encouraged to take as many "strongly recommended" articulated courses as possible so they are stronger candidates for admission and better prepared for success in engineering

100 course completion required for berkeley engineering
100% Course Completion Required for Berkeley Engineering!

  • It is critical that students check www.assist.org for requirements specific to their intended major

  • Complete all courses listed as “Required Courses”

  • Complete as many courses as possible listed as “Recommended Courses”

Coe personal statement
COE Personal Statement

  • How did you become interested in engineering?

  • Why are you interested in the major to which you’re applying? What excites you about studying this major?
